1176: National Parks in England

This paper has been summarised from ‘National Parks in England’, a Briefing Paper by Nicola Thompson of the Centre for Rural Economy, University of Newcastle.

Year of Publication2010

National Park Authorities, policy makers and visitors, all need to ‘get’ the message that the future of National Parks depends on the future of those who live and work within them. A reform of the purposes of National Parks is needed so that they actively work with their communities to promote social and economic wellbeing. This would allow the Park Authorities to adapt to a funding climate where working through the ‘Big Society’ will be more important than drawing in grants. NPAs also need to work together more to share knowledge on working with communities effectively.
